[applause] i think there's a lot of -- but it's alva liquid question. but you did see some in the republican party and in the romney campaign say it was because of sandy. or it's because now we've given gifts to everybody. it's because the ush ban areas turned out. no, that's not why we won. we won because the middle-class believed the president's economic message would be better for them than governor romney's message. we did a lot of things in in campaign well. used technology. we had amazing volunteers. i know a lot of you
: hurricane sandy -- does that help or hurt the president? people are complaining that the response has not been quick enough. guest: it helped the president a little bit. the cake is still baking. there are not a lot of undecided voters. i do not think it changed anything. host: rick is on the line from massachusetts on the independent line. good morning. caller: i think all polls are an absolute joke. the questions posed are going to be toward the end of achieving the goal of the pollster. it depends on how the question is asked. the answer can be spun in the way he wants. the university of boulder has actual numbers as opposed to opinion. i do not give my opinion to the pollsters because i do not know how they are going to skew them. host: can you give us your opinion? who you think is going to win? caller: i believe it is going to be mitt romney. all the jobs the president wants to create are taxpayer funded. and the $1.30 trillion deficit. host: who you vote for in 2008? caller: i voted for john mccain. guest: there is a difference between pollsters and the republican polls. when w

, particularly solar. as we know from super storm sandy, there were people out of power for weeks and weeks. that is a way to help people deal with an increase in the friday and ferocity of storms that will damage our -- the variety and ferocity of stores that will damage our communities on the eastern seaboard. we need to be prepared to deal with that. >> i just want to go back when quickset into what this gentleman raised. to increase the number of minorities in teaching, we have to lift of the teaching profession. we have to make teaching something people value and one to go into. there is criticism about unions and a lot of low morale among the teaching profession. we need to do more to encourage young people and people in inner cities to go into teaching. teach for america is not a long- term solution. it is free people from the outside into inner-city. we need to get people in the inner cities to go into teaching and serve their own communities. we need to do a lot more training around cult throw competency -- cultural compotencies around teachers. there was a criticism of the demogra
about hurricane sandy. the republican responses by the newly elected chairwoman of the house republican conference. she also talked about thanksgiving and said republicans were ready to work with president obama to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. obama talked about of the obama family, i want to wish everybody a very happy thanksgiving. for us, this is a day full of ta family, i want to wish everybody a very happy thanksgiving. for us, this is a day full of family and>> on behalf friends,d football. it is a date to fight the urge to take a nap, at least until after dinner. most of all, it is a time to give thanks for each other and for the bounty we enjoy in this country. that is important this year. we have just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy. it also required us to make choices. sometimes that led us to focus on what sets us apart rather than ties us together. thanksgiving is a chance to put it all in perspective. to remember that, despite our differences, we are americans first and foremost. today we give thanks for blessings t
in this election. shortening the convention in tampa and sandy at the end of probably had an impact. i do not know that it is easy to measure the impact. we have spoken amongst the voters who decided in the last seven days -- barack obama won a majority -- a huge surprise to political scientists around the country, who will tell you that the challenger picks up the majority of the last minute undecided voters with an incumbent because they are not happy with the status quo and in this case they broke for the incumbent. sandy probably had something to do with that. look, i think it is a matter of policy and outreach, with people, the right people speaking for the republican party. finally, it is a matter of town. -- tone. these policies are inclusive. a quick way to grow those for everyone is to have the policies that were laid out by mitt romney, and we just were not successful in that. >> do you think that the comments by the senatorial candidates mattered? did they carry in the polling that you saw on a national level? >> yes. again, hard to measure, but obviously the gender gap that we have on
that awful hurricane sandy week. about how the new york stock exchange was under three feet of water. of course, it wasn't true, it wasn't true at all. cnn got that story, not from one of its reporters. cnn got the story from an online message board on the national weather service's website so they got a line, "three feet of water, new york stock exchange," and they put it out. i don't want to pick on cnn because it could have been done by somebody else, too. but that, to me, is one of the dangers in trying to retain a best standard, some practice, some place where you can turn and say, this is the right way of doing things and this is simply wrong. and i have the impression these days, despite all of the good things thank you very much said about -- that you have said about all the curators and whatever, all of that stuff being said, i am left with an uneasy feeling that i don't know where all of the information is coming from. >> right. >> i don't have a feeling that -- remember years ago when we knew every cameraman who was taking pictures of some big event in cairo. we knew exact
one in the new jersey newspaper, after the election and hurricane sandy, millions still left powerless. our hearts go out to those that are still without electricity up in the five boroughs and new jersey shore. hopefully they are pulling it together now. the other a reverend, i heard was, hey, the chair won. after the republican convention and everything else. without asking you voted for, let me pull the audience to. how many of you thought the election results were mostly positive? there you go. how many mostly negative? and how many too soon to tell? that is a good barometer of our audience tonight. as a challenge to the panel, abraham lincoln in the start of his campaign in 1858 said, a house divided cannot stand. reference to the nation -- nature of the republic back then. how divided are we, where are the lines? both candidates promise bipartisan progress. facing the challenges of a nation at home and abroad. can the winner possibly deliver? i would put that board as a challenge not just to the president by congress as well. tammy resolved extraordinary good but we are now facin
as something that i'm not because quite frankly they cannot beat the farmer from big sandy with the record that i have for veterans for sportsmen for women for education for tax policy for making sure that montana's rural perspective is front and center in washington, d.c. look, over the last six years i've had an incredible opportunity to work with some of the most incredible people in the world and they all live right in this state. when i first got appointed to the veterans affairs committee, at public meetings i had a vietnam veteran come up and say you're not going to treat the men and women coming out of iraq and afghanistan like you did us. i work hard to live up to the promises. i've had sportsmen come up and say you have the best habitat in the world and if we can't get access it doesn't do us any good. so we've worked not only to increase the number of acres but also make sure that there's access to it. i've had women come up to me and say you know what? i can't afford health care. i'm a single mom or i'm single. and that income does not allow me to get health care. and that's wh
hurricane sandy incentive affected parts of cleveland as well, i went to a church this morning. hed they told us the pastor th talked about the damage done. i tell you what. one of the things from the day before the storm hit, the president i would get on the line with a conference call with all the governors in the affected states, from my state of delaware, and with the mayors as well. with all of our team, the secretary of defense. the femal director, and the entire team. my mom used to say out of everything bad something good will happen. what i took away from this last week was the incredible amount of cooperation just between democrats and republicans. my governor is a democrat. he is on the line and he is talking to governor chris christie. he is saying we got hit in delaware. you got hit worse than we did. we will send you some of our cherry pickers to put up the electricity. that was the nature of the conversation. i was proud. i was elected without is a 29 year old kid. that is how it used to be. we used to always work together. that is the way it used to work. i have a gr
. they will never know that right. when we fought the pro 8 case, chris and sandy -- they are twins. they were entering high school. they graduate in june. their moms are not married. we have to tell this human story as often as possible because that is what america cares about. we have to be smart about how we get these take juries and how we -- victories and how we get them as fast as we can. always remembering why and we fought. i cannot be more eloquent than you were. >> you talked about the coalitions that were put in place for the work that was done in this election season. how do you see our role as lgbt people in working other issues of oppression? where do you see that playing out? >> you are right. it is important. look at the fiscal cliff. sequestration. if we do not come to a sensible resolution, all people, including lgbt people, it is silly when you have these discussions as though lgbt people are not part of the community impacted by health care or impacted by cuts in medical care, especially care for hiv and aids patients. look at where we are headed without a deal. we have to
of the hundreds of people that work at cbs news during the crazy week of hurricane sandy has an example -- each has their own story of difficulty at home. all of them came right to work and ran into the story. that is what happens time and time again in the news business. you cannot predict what happens tomorrow, and that is part of what i think is exciting. requires some sacrifice working holidays, running into a storm when your own house had a tree come down on it. everybody had a story. i have worked incredibly hard and made us all proud. that really is a big part of what we try to achieve it. we are proud of what we are doing. in that case, we are proud of public service. then the election can, and i am proud of that too. everybody stay sober? it really was a culmination for us. we had taken over -- in charge of a cbs news one year and a half ago. these big stories happened. that is a priority of our organization. when a big story happens, we are ready to jump on a dime, including the petraeus story, and that is as big as it gets. to cover it in a way that helps the viewer better understand
. remember some other republican narrative is going to be sandy is what made a difference. why? because you saw this enormous public embrace of the idea of bipartisanship at a time of great stress in the country. the bromance between obama and chris christie was kind of like a cross between "i spy" and laurel and hardy. you have got that, and you had run the talking about how i will reach out, i will find common ground. obama calls in and says we need a common ground. i need you to be my emissary to congressional republicans and get them to go along with the simpson-bowles grand bargain. at the same time, while congressional republicans are not wanting to support governor romney, and remember when paul ryan after the 2010 elections, he was an icon for them, came back to the freshmen and said we cannot do the budget cuts we promised you right now. they threw him out of the room. they are not to be eager to do that. you can gain significant leverage by moving in that direction, and it would not surprise me that obama has a couple of cards up his sleeve to turn the bully pulpit into a more pot
